Eyethu Nathi le South Africa
Last year Jesse ran a campaign called "Eyethu Nathi le South Africa" translated "This South Africa is ours too” The goal of the campaign was to discuss issues such as Xnephobia, Woman & Child Abuse and their safety in our country. To do that he produced 3 posters and shared them via social media platforms. He took inspiration from his posters to create patterns for fabric printing, each of these patterns has been given a person’s name that is representative of some of the different African nationalities found in South Africa today.
